Housing development approved for Plémont
Wednesday 14th November 2012, 3:10PM GMT.
A development of 28 houses has been approved for land at Plémont.
After years of debate, proposals, protests and campaigns, Environment Minister Rob Duhamel has today given the go-ahead to an application by owner Trevor Hemmings to develop the former holiday village site.
The National Trust for Jersey has been campaigning to save the land from development and last week revealed they had collected £2m worth of pledges towards the cause.
Next month the States are due to debate Chief Minister Ian Gorst’s proposal to buy the land, possibly using a compulsory purchase order, from the owner.
